I used the Kromekote Silver Foil cardstock for my card. It is never too early to get started on your Christmas cards, and silver foil is perfect for the holidays! I embossed the Silver Foil cardstock with an embossing folder, and then I gently rubbed the surface with a sanding block.
I used Copic markers to highlight just a few elements of the embossed image. I die cut a small scrap of the silver cardstock with a mini tag die template, and then I stamped the sentiment on it with Staz-On ink (which dries quickly on the glossy surface).
You can see here the "scratching" of the surface that happened when I gently buffed the raised images with a sanding block! It gives the card even more dimension.
I created the card and mat with ColorMates cardstock (deep emerald isle and deep berry red).
Thanks for looking!
